Ibharamapura Krishnacharya (Appavaru) Prophecy on Sri Ganeshacharya
In Mantralaya, Sri Ganesha Acharya met Krishnacharya and did namaskara at the sacred feet. Immediately, Krishnamacharya informed Ganesh Acharya that you are performing namaskara today and that I must perform namaskara on you beginning tomorrow. Everyone was taken aback by Krishnacharya’s statements because he was an Aparoksha Gnyani and everyone used to bow to him. Later that evening, a message arrived from Nanjanagudu stating that Ganesha Acharya needed to begin traveling to Nanjanagudu right once. According to the message, Ganesh Acharya left Mantralaya immediately and went to Nanjangudu to meet Swamiji. Sri Sugnyanendrateertharu appointed him as his successor, naming him Sri Sudharmendra Teertharu. Sri Sudharmendra Teertharu mostly used to stay at Mantralaya.
It came as a revelation for the devotees that the swamiji had excellent cognitive powers and had an Amsha of Doorvasa. A devotee was cured of his leprosy with the blessings of the swamiji.
He attained Brindavana on Pushya Bahula Panchami at Mantralaya the sacred place of Sri Gururajaru.
